Crediting a combination of weight-training and breastfeeding for her body after baby, Michelle Monaghan admits that she has also been blessed by genetics. “This is honestly the first time I’ve ever watched my diet in my life, since I got pregnant and now that I’m breastfeeding,” she says. “It never really occurred to me to do that.” Since welcoming daughter Willow Katherine, 5 months, however, Michelle’s focus has shifted. “It feels like Christmas every single morning ,” she reveals, before adding:

In the movie Trucker the 33-year-old actress portrays a mother reunited with the son she abandoned as a baby.

Willow is Michelle’s daughter with husband Peter White.
